"The Beat !!!!" looks like a great show. Bill "Hoss" Allen seems like a host with the most. I'm gonna have to dig into it and find what I can. Ty.

On a completely different subject, what do you think of Jacqueline du Pré? I'm kind of stunned by her performance of Dvořák's Cello Concerto in B minor (w/LSO).

She was by most estimation, one of the greatest cellest ever, and she had her career cut way too short by MS .
Her recording of the Elgar concerto with Barbirolli is her best know performance . A very passionate player, but she could pull off the more restrained Haydn concertos as well .

there is a slightly latter one with her husband, Daniel Barenboim and a vid of it .
